press release

Bosch has now extended its high-pressure washer program with two particularly powerful and robust machines for the thorough cleaning of stubborn dirt: the AQT 42-13 and the AQT 45-14 X. The machines in the "Expert" class both have high-performance 1 900 and 2 100-Watt motors, provide a pressure of 130 and 140 bar and convey up to 420 and 450 liters of water per hour. This ensures rapid and efficient completion of demanding tasks such as cleaning large areas or very dirty surfaces around the house and garden.

Versatile due to high-quality equipment and comprehensive accessories
As the "Easy" and "Universal" models before them, the AQT 42-13 and AQT 45-14 X are supplied assembled and are immediately ready to use. Lances, accessories, gun and high-pressure hose are stored in a space-saving way on the tool, so they are always within reach and exactly where you need them. They are assembled in seconds due to the SDS click connections – then the tool is ready to be used.

Both high-pressure washers are delivered with extensive accessories and are thus extremely versatile. The standard equipment of the AQT 42-13 includes the Deluxe patio cleaning attachment with extended handle and four different nozzles: a fixed fan jet nozzle, a rotary jet nozzle, a 90-degree nozzle and a high-pressure detergent nozzle that can meter the detergent volume. The AQT 45-14 X is even more flexible in its range of operations. It has three cleaning lances: A vario fan jet lance with adjustable spray jet from very narrow to very wide, a rotary lance for removing particularly stubborn dirt and the standard lance for the use of the patio cleaning attachment, 90-degree nozzle and high-pressure detergent nozzle. Its high-pressure gun is made of metal, to make it even more robust and stable in your hand. Furthermore, the model has an integrated hose reel, which neatly winds up the eight-meter long high-pressure hose.

Convenient and flexible usage
Both high-pressure washers have a telescopic handle that can be pulled out to a height of 90 centimeters and rubber wheels with a diameter of 18 centimeters. This allows the AQT 42-13 and AQT 45-14 X to be transported particularly easily and conveniently to the desired place of work. A further practical feature is the integrated base plate that permits the AQT 45-14 X, for example, to be stabilized when winding up the high-pressure hose onto the hose reel. Both models have an auto-stop and a self-priming function: Motor and pump always stop automatically as soon as the gun switch is released. This ensures that water never escapes unintentionally. The self-priming kit with a three meter long hose and filter is available as an accessory. It is used when mains water is not available but rather an alternative water supply, for example, rainwater from a tank. This guarantees flexibility of use of the machines.

The high-pressure washers AQT 42-13 and AQT 45-14 X will be available at retail outlets from January 2015 onwards at the recommended retail price of 249.99 euros and 299.99 euros including VAT.
